Rated 5 out of 5 by KYBowhunter81 Only jig u will ever have to buy!! Had a dozen arrows just laying around that needed vanes. Looked at some of the quick fletch setups but I'm just not convened they're worth it. So I dropped the extra money on the Bitzenberger jig and I love it. Its a great product and will pay for itself in the first dozen arrows. Its easy to use and very well made. This thing will be fletching arrows long after I'm gone. April 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by donnyrambo Easier than tying up your boots. I am brand new to building my own arrows. I bought this Jig based on reviews and recommendations. The Bitzenburger Jig is made of quality materials and it is very easy to set up and use. I bought the right helical clamp and jig set up. I am shooting a 45 pound longbow with fixed blade broadheads, field tips and judo points. It takes about two minutes to set up the jig to match the shaft diameter of a particular set of arrow shafts. Just loosen the screws on the dials and move the magnets so the clamp becomes flush with the arrow shaft and you are set. I am fletching and repairing new and used arrows for myself and my little boy. Aluminum, wood and carbon. Arrow building is: Rewarding, fun, relaxing and most of all convienent. Thank you Bass Pro for providing this quality product. February 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by polecatt Amazing product Best fletching jig on the market, will handle both arrows and bolts. if you get it for cross bow bolts make sure you purchase the insert for the half moon nock as it only comes stock with a insert for regular arrow nock's. January 2, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by lopes good product takes a little trial and error to get the angle set on the jig but the set up is easy with all tools included in the kit. September 22, 2012

Details:In product description it says 4'', I'm using 2'' blazer vanes and wanted to be sure it works before ordoring.
A:Helical means that the vanes lay to the right or left on the arrow. Right helical arrows will spin clockwise in flight and left helical arrows will spin counterclockwise in flight. Most prefer straight fletched arrows which means the vanes run straight down the arrow.
A:Helical is what puts the "bend or twist" into the fletch. It is recommended that a helical is used for shooting fixed blade broadheads. This is what causes the arrow to spin like a rifled barrel spins a bullet for accuracy.
A:Helical is the slight twist to the vane. You can look at different arrows and you will notice some vanes are applied straight and some are applied in a slight twisting fashion. Vanes help steady the arrow in flight and the helical twist on a vane will sping the arrow faster and allow for more control.
A:Helical is the direction of your vanes if it is a right helical your vanes will be placed slightly on a right angle and will spin to the right and preferred for right hand bows. A left helical is the same only its placed to the left and spins left and is recommended for left hand bows but ether one can be shot out of any bow.
A:Yes, but you need a crossbow nock adapter. I purchased one on the internet. The straight clamp can be adjusted to get the offset you are looking for. I will be reflecthing some bolots for my son's crossbow, when the local archery shop gets the new nocks and fletches in.
A:It has two allen head screws on the two knobs on it. Loosen the screws adn turn the knobs to obtain the offset you wish.
A:Buy the appropriate holder, 4 degrees offset is a mini hellical. Or adjust the lay of the arrow in the jig.
A:From what I have read, most guys say that you want the arrow spinning toward your bow. So left handed shooters would shoot a left helical and right handed shooters would shoot a right helical. Personally I say shoot whatever works for you.
A:The experts agree that it does not matter if you are shooting off of a shelf or a rest. Although if you are shooting traditional off of your hand you should match Right or Left accordingly. ie I am shooting a Right Helical feathered fletch from a right handed longbow.
A:it really doesn't matter but i would recommend a left helical
A:I am also a lefty. I would recommend shooting right offset instead of helical. Helical is more of a twist. Offset is a slight angle to right of center. Unless your shooting feathers for vanes, if that's the case then go helical.
A:It was once believed that the orientation of the fletching would help pull the arrow away from the riser aiding clearance, slo-mo. video shows that the spin up takes several feet to take effect so no real difference as long as all your arrows are the same.
A:No. But this jig is accurate and precise.
A:NO. It is set up for one vane at a time
A:No, one at a time....
A:I was shooting 2 inch blazer vanes with right helical using a biscuit and I shot just fine. Never had any problems.
A:a helical will not effect the WB it will actually help the arrow spin faster, and sooner.
A:WB don't like rotation or more correctly vanes don't like rotating in WBs. The will but the drag increases on the vanes, spraying a little silicone lube on both WB and vane really helps..
A:Yes it is. Very adjustable and fine tuning.
A:One clamp of your preference comes with the jig, however the others can be purchased seperately. The right helical is the only one I use.

A:No. If you order the straight fletching jig, you can only fletch straight because it comes with a straight clamp.. You can not "adjust" the jig or the clamp to fletch left or right. If you want to fletch left or right, you would have to order the left or right clamp. I have had one of these jigs for many years. I fletch all of my arrows with the right helical jig. I shoot recurves and shoot my arrows off the shelf. This allows me to use a helical fletch.
